I'm having an issue deploying ArubaOS 8 VMM to a VMware ESXi/vSphere environment. When I import the OVF and power on, I get an error "virtual CPU sockets cannot be more than one"
When I go down to 1 CPU, I get an error that mimium requirement is not met:
The VMWare CPU config should be a minimum of 1 socket and 6 cores. What is the name / firmware version of the OVA you are downloading and importing?
Interesting. I am using ArubaOS_MM_126.96.36.199_59688.ova.
When I looked at my CPU settings it was set to 6 CPUs, 1 cores per socket. Setting it to 6 CPUs, 6 cores/socket the machine booted up fine.
I just deployed a fresh OVA and it was 6 CPUS @ 6 Cores per socket. Might have been modified or someone changed it on your VM, not sure. Might be good to deploy one again (you don't have to keep it or even power it up) and see/make sure it deployed the same.
in case your trying to do this on an esxi standalone box and your web gui does'nt have the core's per socket setting available to you, you can go into advanced settings, and add this variable to your vm and it should work
cpuid.coresPerSocket = x
i used 3 and mine started working after that.
